RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond residents will soon have a new way to get around.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1UBkisy) that officials are rolling out a bike share program this fall that will allow residents to rent bicycles for short trips around the city.

The program will start with 220 bicycles and up to 22 docking stations. More bikes and docking stations are expected to be added in 2017.

Under the current proposal, it would cost $1.75 for a one way-trip and $6 for a 24-hour pass. Residents will also be able to get monthly and annual memberships.

The prices still have to be approved by Richmond City Council.

The city is using a $1 million federal grant to help pay for the program.
